on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new
end up defining president obama's foreign policy over the next four years. it's a real challenge, folks, and one that doesn't get enough attention. >>> we're going to stick with the foreign policy theme. this week we're meeting one of our new members of congress. today we're talking to tammy duckworth from illinois. she'll lean heavily on her own military credentials and experience to knock off a tea party incumbent, joe walsh. duckworth is one of 16 iraq or afghanistan veterans in the new congress. and one of the first two female combat veterans ever to serve. she made national headlines when she talked about being wounded in iraq during a speech at the 2008 democratic convention and told the story again in 2012. >> a rocket-propelled grenade hit our helicopter, exploding in my lap, ripping off one leg, crushing the other, and tearing my right arm apart. but i kept trying to fly until i passed out. and in that moment, my survival and the survival of my entire crew depended on all of us pulling together. their heroism is why i'm alive today. >> she lost both legs and part of the
geithner. lew is a democratic veteran of washington, 30 years of service. currently he is president obama's chief of staff. earlier lew served as his budget director, and in that job he raised republican hackles. in fact, jeff sessions of alabama, the ranking republican on the senate budget committee, has already said he will try to block mr. lew's confirmation, notably over a statement lew made two years ago. lew was then omb, office of management and budget director. "our budget will get us over the next several years to the point where we can look the american people in the money th speaking to this, senator sessions had this to say. "to look the american people in the eye and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during ng my entire t in washington, unquote. >> question is jacob lew a shoe- in for treasury secretary or does president obama have a fight on his hand? >> i don't know if you would call him a shoe-in. he is going to be touched up a bit by the republicans but he is going to be confirmed. does obama have a fight object his hands? you bet
as the president's top domestic policy adviser. well, she left the obama white house about a year ago. she's with us now on inauguration day here on the national mall. melody, four years ago, it was history. it was hope. it was change. as this president begins the second term, still a sluggish economy, a polarized political environment, what is the number one challenge as he prepares to address the american people tomorrow? >> well, i still think it is about the hope of the american people, and it is still historic, the second inauguration of this president. but at the same time, obviously, it's going to be working with congress to get the economy moving, moving forward in terms of the big initiatives that the president considers to be so important with regard to immigration reform, implementation of health care reform and making sure that everybody has an opportunity, has a shot at the american dream. >> you mentioned health care reform. you know, republicans would say he did that first last time. he got in our face. that ruined the environment. i know each side blames the other side. i d
